MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY FIREFIGHTER MAILER BASICALLY ADMITS THERE'S NO WAY TO STOP LOCAL ILLEGAL FIREWORKS!!!



Right now on local streets we're enjoying one blast of illegal fireworks after the next. These explosive sounds offer a bit of confirmation that Kansas City is still the land of the free inasmuch as sometimes there's really not much people can do to stop a good party.

To wit . . .

CHECK OUT THIS KANSAS CITY FIREFIGHTER UNION MAILER THAT PRETTY MUCH ADMITS ILLEGAL FIREWORKS ARE A FACT OF LOCAL LIFE AND OFFERS SOME SAFETY TIPS ANYHOO!!!

Even better, they're giving away a small flag . . . Which is kinda nice because most of the other flags flying in town tomorrow will be made in China . . . Not kidding about that . . .



Here's the message, safety tips and tacit admission of reality . . .



Hopefully, we'll have just a bit of BREAKING/EXCLUSIVE NEWS, discussion, debate, discourse and all kinds of good stuff for the morning update as we celebrate our freedom and offer more than a few well-deserved fact checks . . . STAY TUNED!!!

Do yourself a favor people, keep a hose handy for the weekend because it'll be an emergency services nightmare.

DOOD. 3rd Of July is a KC tradition. Don't front.

TKC, you need to warn people about random celebratory gunfire as well. That's may not burn your house down but it's just as dangerous.

KCFD telling people how to enjoy illegal fireworks?

I wouldn't do that if I WERE YOU!

I'm surprised they didn't put Sherwood on their mailer. Local 42 doesn't seem to be trying very hard nowadays.

This the only day of the year they can justify so much staffing! Good use of union dues too. I hope the flags are made in America.

This from the fire dept that ignore buildings full of gas about to blow up. Thay have proved they don't care if people blow themselves up.

RE: JULY 4th SAFETY TIPS.....SERIOUSLY??????

1. "Stay 500 feet away from fireworks."
How do the fireworks get lit?

2. "Leave any area where untrained amateurs are launching fireworks."
So, are you advising residents to leave town?

3. "Never relight a 'dud' firework."
See rule number #1

4. "Don't allow fireworks to be stored in warm or damp environments."
Isn't KC typically warm and damp on July 4th?

5. "Make sure an adult is ALWAYS present, even around sparklers!"
Again! What about your rule #1 ?

Did anyone review these "rules" before this went to the printer?

@11:07 For The WIN.

11:07 does indeed make a compelling argument that the union should have hired an ad firm to make this.

Better to promote fireworks safety than to deny that people are shooting them off! That's like not teaching sex ed cause teens shouldn't be having it. TKC you are kinda reaching far here to make an issue about firefighters where there is none.

Hey 9:45 they are saying that you should see a professional show instead. Read the big print at the bottom dumbass!

Mr. Kansas City Farty Britches said...

I'm a bit angry because I dropped a cherry bomb in me underpants.

Does that count?

Also, I'm going to start firing bottle rockets at the bitches down the street if they don't shut it.

All the crying about layoffs and closings yet they have money for unsolicited bulk mailings. I have a hard time supporting anybody who puts more trash in my mailbox.

Anyone know where I can get some cherry bombs and m-80's?

And remember-
Stay safe from your local firefighters!

Yes, the Niggers will undoubtedly disrespect themselves and others with their illegal fireworks. Niggers pretend like their's no money to pay their bills, properly care for and educate their children and work for a living... suddenly, like clockwork every single year, these folks have ample money for explosives. Then in a terroristic act, aim the fireworks at hardworking people's homes and personal property in the name of fun. Niggers. No relief in sight.

In this Sly 2014 Era KC, the KCFD mailer was a pleasant surprise. I even taped it in my window. The kids read the back part on their own. It reminded me of the old days in KC, when common sense was in high esteem, and a mailer like that would've fit right in.
